There’s one thing you can’t (and I mean CAN’T) go without on your big day: your wedding cake. It’s the one thing that is typical of every wedding, and yet, there are so many options out there that it’s hard to know where to begin!
Personally, I just went with the flow when it came to my cake. I had heard of this incredibly smooth icing option called fondant, and I let my mother-in-law design an absolutely gorgeous beach-themed, seashell accented wedding cake for my reception. I have absolutely no regrets because my cake was undeniably beautiful, but I certainly wouldn’t have minded if it had tasted just a little bit better. (As it turns out, fondant is a very, VERY gummy type of icing.)
Well, there are definitely a lot of different ways to approach the big wedding cake decision: tasting, reading, comparing, tasting again, but wouldn’t it be nice if you had a little nudge in the right direction to get you started? I thought so.
Well, just so you have a starting point, I thought I’d provide a very nice chart I found that breaks down your many, many icing options, and their various features like flavor, consistency, coloring, etc. Check out this link to the Wilton website to have a look and learn a little bit about your icing options before you make your (littler) big decision!
